Request Concert shown in Finland

14 August 2015

Request Concert directed by Yana Ross and brilliantly performed by Danuta Stenka, was shown in Finland during the 47th Tampere Theatre Festival.
The performance was showed twice (8 and 9 August) and impressed viewers and critics alike.

Finnish press published reviews of the Polish production and Yana Ross (the director) became one of the most popular stars of the festival.

Request Concert is co-produced by Łaźnia Nowa theatre and TR Warszawa. The performance, based on a play by Franz Xavier Kroetz, is a one woman show without a single word uttered. Even though the style of the performance is far from what most people expect to see in a Polish theatre, both critics and viewers were unanimously enthusiastic and listed the performance as one of the most important shows of the season, praising Danuta Stenka's brilliant performance. The production had its premiere in December, during the International Divine Comedy Theatre Festival.

Tampere Theatre Festival is the oldest and biggest theatre festival in Scandinavia, presenting not only the best Scandinavian performances of a given season, but also foreign prouctions. Tampere Festival programme includes all kinds of 21th century theatre: classical plays, circus art, dance theatre and street theatre.
